Belfast Water Charges protest

category antrim | miscellaneous | news report author Sunday December 03, 2006 20:03author by Ciarán Report this post to the editors

Two dozen protestors stage a picket outside the BBC building in Great Victoria Street in Belfast on Thrusday evening where Secretary of State for the Six Counties Peter Hain was due to take part in a televised discussion.

Despite the pouring rain twenty five or so people picketed the entrance to the building and handed out leaflets to those going inside to sit in the audience. Although the weather was very poor spirits were high.

It is great to see people protesting against the shocking privitisation that is taking place in the Nortehrn Ireland state. Decisive class issues like this needs strong unity amongst all. As we have seen by the Nationalist and Unionist parties particpation in government, no sectarian group offers socialism in practice. Fuck green and orange and go Red.

Fully agree with the previous comment, the success of attacks on the northern working class, be they from phoenix gas or Peter Hain will directly correlate to the absence of CLASS UNITY and opposition, its time to tell the parties where to go on this one. This fight will be won by the communities ignoring the water tax, whether the parties recognise it or not is up to them.

Good on ya Renton. This religious stuff has been designed to divide people for centuries , and it worked.
Thats really shocking.

The same story is on the way down here. The difference here is that the mob are charging the taxpayers and the rest , for the addition of the six Chemicals in the Water that numb any opposition.... ( to everything).

Ye may have a better chance in overcomming privatisation and other fuck overs up there as your Water does not contain Aluminium Sulphate or Hexafluorosilic acid in it. Or does it?
